Pokémon GO’s Halloween event may be over, but the developers at Niantic aren’t done yet! Coming soon, all you dedicated Pokéhunters will have extra reason to log some time into your Pokédex: Daily Bonuses.
Each day you’ll gain a bonus for performing two regular activities: catching Pokémon and visiting Pokéstops. Even better, if you do this every day for the entire week? You’ll get an additional bonus!
So, what do you earn for all this diligence? How does some more Experience and Stardust sound? I think we can all use more of both, especially the latter. I know I’m a Stardust addict, trying to boost all those Pokémon to battle levels.
Catching a Pokémon at least once that day nets you 500 XP and 600 Stardust, but if you do it for the full week you’ll earn an additional 2,000 XP and 2,400 Stardust! That’s a whopping 5,500 XP and 6,600 Stardust for all your hard work.
Visiting Pokéstops isn’t as lucrative, but it can still get you some decent Experience. You’ll receive 500 XP each day you spin that disc, and a bonus 2,000 XP if you visit every day of the week. Also, you’ll gain additional items on your daily visit and an even bigger bonus for the week. A week’s visits to your usual stops for 5,500 XP and a bunch of extra loot? Sounds easy to me!
Niantic says the weeks will reset every Wednesday at midnite, so make sure you time yourself right. You can earn your daily and weekly all the way up to 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, but once that clock switches over you’ll be starting on the next week’s bonus.
If you casual players were only pushing yourself during the Halloween event, it’s time to keep that momentum going. You gotta be the very best, like no one ever was! Or at least, do your best once a day, if you want that bonus.
